Environment

The Pieridae Group is subject to, and to the best of its knowledge is in compliance with, federal, provincial and municipal environmental legislation in all of its areas of activity. The Pieridae Group recognizes that it must conduct all of its activities in a manner that both protects and preserves the environment. The Pieridae Group takes this responsibility very seriously.

On March 21, 2014, the Minister of Environment (Nova Scotia) approved the proposed Goldboro LNG Facility pursuant to section 40 of the Environment Act (Nova Scotia) and subsection 26 (1) of the Environmental Assessment Regulations. The approval is subject to approximately forty conditions which are described in more detail at http://novascotia.ca/nse/ea/goldboro-lng/conditions.pdf.

One of the conditions (condition 1.3) requires that Pieridae Canada commences work on the Goldboro LNG Facility within two years of the issuance of the approval unless granted a written extension by the Minister. On August 6, 2015, the Minister issued to Goldboro LNG Limited Partnership written confirmation that the deadline to commence work on the Goldboro LNG Facility is extended to March 21, 2018.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency determined pursuant to paragraph 128 (1) (c) of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (Canada) that a federal environmental assessment was not required to be obtained by Pieridae Canada in relation to the proposed Goldboro LNG Facility.
